Spuds second session
Spudsy is not so keen on the steps - you can see she is a little worried about them. At times she stretches her body as far as she can to avoid placing her paws on the steps. In her rush to get down the steps, she had started to go sideways with her back legs. It is so important not to use luring - we may get a dog to do what we want but that does not build confidence or make them feel really wonderful about something. Spudsy needs to feel happy and relaxed about the using these steps. That will take time. Patience and tiny steps are key.
